  1. Hi, I have decided to use Linux Mandrive on my home computer and Im very happy with that, but becouse of that I have understood what makes Linux non attractive for "normal" users. 1. Installation - easier than in Windows, everything have installed automaticly without problems. 2. Day to day use - now is where the problem lays. Thanks to to Mandriva URPMI system it was so easy to install programs (if I would have to compile anything I would format the linux partition and put windows instead). I was unable to install Lexmark multifunctional device what makes me little bit angry. I have installed mythtv, great app but so difficult in management for normal user (for example editing channels with SQL language ...), I could handle it, but tell my girlfirend to go to shell if she wants to edit channel list. Why when I install patch in windows i do not have to edit source code becouse everything normally goes ok, in linux when I wanted install patch for mythtv i recived many errors and got advice to edit source code but it is not what I want to do on my home computer ? My question is: Is there any chance to make linux more user friendly, I understand that linux is stable and secure, but for home users we except something really easy in use. Mandriva is doing well but there is still a lot to do in shell when something is wrong. But for now I use Mandriva in home anyway ...

  11. Hi, I have tried four distribuion of Mandrake and I cant understand why in one distribution my usb devices (digital camera and pendrive) works and in next distribution doesnt ? Why in new Mandriva 2005 LE it doesnt work again ? Simply Mandriva looks better but hardware problems are the first thing the user dont want to have. I have found solution like mount /dev/sta .... something like that, but I want it automatic every time I insert the pen, I dont want write 2 lines of coding in terminal to make pendrive works. regards Peter
